The Bethlehem Centre was established in 1987 by the House of Bread Benedictine Sisters. The Sisters decided to sell the property in 2014 in order to retire from many years of welcoming groups and individuals to the Centre. In 2015, the property was purchased by the Bethlehem Investment Group, a group of what we call “angel” investors, who wanted to save the Centre and its work. The new Bethlehem Centre is no longer associated with any particular faith tradition. Our vision embraces “spirituality without borders” and we maintain the tradition of hospitality that has long been part of the Centre’s strength. We welcome all those who wish to explore their own spirituality as well as discover the wisdom and teachings of others. We believe that there is a connectedness in humanity in our search for meaning and spirituality, and we collaborate with partners to offer programs that help people evolve in ways that expand our consciousness and connectedness to each other, our communities and our planet.
We encourage and support the expression of beliefs and values about humanity, spirituality, healing and peace. We welcome groups and individuals exploring a spiritual path and seeking a gathering place for education, reflection and community building.
